Design Advantages

Design Advantages

  • Separate compressor and motor chambers with dedicated cooling circuits for cooler operation and longer life.

  • Oil site gauge for ease of monitoring and service.

  • Integrated heavy-duty air cooled aftercooler for up to 65% moisture removal.

  • Filter maintenance indicator for user-friendly monitoring. The graduated indicator monitors the compressor air filter. The position indicator progressively fills the window as air filter restriction increases and indicates the need for a filter change.

  • Industrial grade compressor with unique features including gasketless cylinder/head design, stainless steel valve disks and tapered roller main bearings for superior dependability.

  • Integral cylinder and head eliminating the possibility of blown head gaskets for leak-free, trouble-free operation.

  • Balanced aluminum alloy first stage piston(s) are weight matched to the cast iron second-stage piston(s) for proper balance and minimized vibration.

  • Lightweight, high-density, die-cast aluminum alloy connecting rods for minimal reciprocating weight. Precision-bored crankpin bearing and piston pin needle bearing are used to properly distribute bearing loads for longer bearing life than bushings.

  • Industrial grade, reliable, high-flow, low lift disc-type valves are made of corrosion resistant Swedish steel to ensure years of trouble free operation.

  • Tapered roller-type main bearings, providing full contact and support of the crankshaft, ensuring compressor durability and long-life.

  • Unique domed piston design for maximum air delivery and efficiency.
